The neutrino is a subatomic particle, smaller than a proton and an electron. The neutrino was proposed by Enrico Fermi and his co-workers in 1930-1932 to explain a common nuclear reaction called beta-decay.
Not too long after, Fermi couldn’t get a paper published in Nature because the neutrino concept was too unrealistic, so he switched … More “The elusive neutrino – a mysterious subatomic particle that may be a key to the unexplained dark matter of the universe.”

TWO COSMIC MYSTERIES. I have personally encountered two cosmic mysteries early in my career – like about 40 years ago. They both involved massive, unprecedented sources of energy. The mysteries continued for decades and occasionally the two encounters kept popping up in my memory. Only in the last few years have both these mysteries been … More “A cosmic mystery, Part 1: Gamma Ray Bursts.”
